any kind of sanity on debt and deficit without that is beyond my comprehension. >> maybe he doesn't believe that, either. >> mark made excellent put on this, that if we get this solved, it would be better with barack obama as president and mitt romney. he is so dug into his position. he is so dug into his position that i not see how he could get an agreement. behalf,tt romney's doesn't like that imus around move to -- doesn't the fact that he does move are out work to his advantage? >> democratic senate, republican house, which he washy president, it i -- wishy washy and, it could be the makings of a deal. >> not if you have a president who is not willing to lean on his own party. obama has been willing to do that. the question is if romney would be willing to lean on his tea party wing. >> are we going to have a democratic senate? >> white and looks increasingly like we will have a democratic -- once again in looks and charisma and like we will have a democratic senate, and the rebel against have once again blown it by not putting -- the republicans have once again blunted by nom
, 20% across-the-board tax cut. how you are going to achieve any kind of sanity on the debt and deficit without that is beyond my comprehension. >> maybe he doesn't believe that either. >> if they are going to get a deal, it probably is going to be better with barack obama as president that mitt romney. he is so dug into his position -- he does flipper from time to time, but he is so dug into his position that i don't see how he could get an agreement. >> on mitt romney's behalf, doesn't the fact that he does move around work to his advantage? >> you could have a democratic senate, republican house, wishy washy president, and that could be the ingredients of a deal. >> is not that if you don't ever president if the -- don't have a president who was willing to lean on his own party. obama has been willing to do that. >> are we going to have a democratic senate? >> right now it looks increasingly like we will have a democratic senate. once again, republicans have blown it by nominating people like richard mourdock in indiana over richard lugar, nominate taught a get in missouri against if
that the deficit is the top issue for so many in this country, how are they supposed to feel about the fact this candidate says hees not going to balance the budget until the end of the second term. >> our tax reform plan has been validated by harvey rosen out of princeton. even the president's current head of the council economic adviser said in 1986 -- a lot of additional jobs, so if you you add up the growth, we think $7 million worth of jobs, plus what we can save by reforming the tax code, it's fully possible. now, you mentioned defense spending. we're going to ramp it up, but do it at the same time the spending on overseas operations is going down. he wants to capture what he spent on afghanistan to help the military rest and reconstitute after ten years of welfare. >> it seems unfair when you all do it, too, those wars are already slated to end and they were paid for with borrowed money. when that isn't being spent, it's not saved for you too to do something else with. >> spending on defense, okay, the top line, if you're including those top line overseas expend we're going to be spe
to get a broader deficit in place combining the tax cuts, extending the bush era tax cuts? umax. buerkle: the house voted with bipartisan support. we don't know what the regulation is going to be coming down type. it will disparately affect the middle class or it will affect all americans in an economy that is so fragile. it will be a mistake to raise taxes. the last congress in 2010 knew that. we don't raise taxes when the economy is fragile. it will impact businesses and job creation and what we want to do is encourage them and help them grow so they can hire and get our economy back on track. >> moderator: sea would get us back on track for now and beyond? buerkle: public. rozum: i would support progressives marginal tax rates on the top 10%. those that have done well in our economy in the past 40 years. i support the eisenhower rates. with the eisenhower rates we could raise $1.2 trillion people need to be put back to work with money in their pockets. i also support cutting the military budget by 50%. we can protect small businesses and farms by not raising taxes. when we get over a

office, we had moved past 20 states in job creation and turned a $3 billion deficit into a $2 billion rainy day fund. whether in public office or at a private business, i did not ask people what party they belonged to. i asked them what ideas they brought to the table. as governor, i met with leaders of both parties to find common ground. that is what i will do as president -- and i will start on day one. on my first day in office, i will also send five bills to congress and sign five executive orders. every one of them will help us create jobs. and that is just the start of my plan to create 12 million jobs in my first term alone. every piece of legislation and every executive order will help us achieve five important goals. first, we will achieve north american energy independence by the year 2020. second, we will make sure our students and workers have the skills they need to succeed. third, we will promote trade the works for america and crack down on countries like china when they cheat. fourth, we will cut the deficit from day one and balance our budget within 10 years. and fina
of momentum in florida, thank you very much, steve. >> he said he would cut the deficit in half, instead, it's double what it was. he said he'd get unemployment by now down to 5.2%, and we learned today, it ticked up to 7.9%, that's 9 million jobs short. >> that was governor mitt romney calling out president obama for falling-- 9 million jobs soar has promised. and the bureau of labor and statistics, adding 171,000 jobs, now are the new numbers going to affect the way the candidates talk about the economy in these final days before the election in joining us now with perspective, a mitt romney supporter who deals firsthand with unemployment issues, governor jan brewer of arizona. >> good morning. >> let's talk for a moment about the jobs numbers that came out yesterday, and the president is saying that the fact that 171,000 jobs have been added shows that his policies are working and taking a little longer than he had he' hoped, but that the country is moving in the right direction. and what's your response to that? >> well, you know, we're all grateful as things are, are turning around a li
. when you were speaker of the house for five of the six years, indiana ran deficits. when mitch daniels came into powers -- came into power couple of years later, indiana was 700 million in debt and had a deficit of $820 million. the facts are stubborn things. i would like to know from my colleague how will we protect and preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana. >> you know our budget has to be in indiana according to the constitution. i have ballast and produce a bipartisan budget. -- i have balanced and produced a bipartisan budget. i find it almost laughable the united states congressman would lecture anyone about fiscal responsibility. you voted not once, not twice, but five times congressman. you voted and the resolve to increase the deficit by $200 billion. >> fine key house, senate, and governor's races from across the country at c-span radio and c- span.org. "washington journal" continues. host: conversation about the battleground state of new hampshire continues with jim merrill. if i could just begin with some specifics about new hampshire. the unemployment rate,
with some ideological policies that have been proven not to work, blow a hole in budget deficit, the economy collapses? i would like to ask -- if these policies that they want to implement are so great why didn't they work in the last 10 years? we have a lot more information in our society today. that was not that long ago when we experienced almost a complete economic collapse. the president has been able to help dig us out of the whole and get us moving in the right direction. there is a jobs bill that any economist who is being objective about it said we ill create over a million new jobs. get some money into the road and bridge projects that we need done in this country. make sure local governments are not laying off police, fire, and teachers. let's move the economy forward and create jobs. make investments into the new energy sector, research and development so we can create the jobs of the future. so places like ohio can keep going with what it is that we have been doing and build on the auto industry and build on the steel industry and get into the new economies. we are hitting a roa
deficit, invest in the skills of our people, invest in the ideas that we need to succeed in a new economy. and, at the time, back in the '90s, the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney said bill clinton's program would hurt the economy and kill jobs. sound familiar? turns out, his math back then was just as bad as it is now. because, by the end of president clinton's second term, we created 23 million new jobs, incomes were up, deficits were down. so, iowa, we know our ideas work. we've put them to the test. we also know that their ideas don't work. because they have been tested, also. in the eight years before i came into office, we've tried what they're selling. we've tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest of americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free license to do what they please. here's what we got. fallen incomes, record deficits, and an economic crisis we're still cleaning up after. so we know what works. we know what doesn't. now, governor romney, he's a very talented salesman. and, in this campaign, he's been working
. and we face this deficit -- could crush the future generations. and republicans and democrats both love america but we need to have leadership -- leadership in washington that will actually bring people together and get the job done and could not care less if it's a republican or a democrat. i've done it before, i'll do it again. i'm mitt romney, and i approve this message. >>> welcome back. you know the storm blew through the capital of maryland yesterday afternoon as well. several stores in annapolis taped up their windows. you see the sandbags piled up there but the harbor did not flood. the surge of the water was actually pushed away from annapolis which tucker said would happen. even when high tide hit around 6:00, the docks were still not under water. they prepared. >> it is called a blowout. the winds pushed the water away. now, we're concerned today because the winds have shifted out of the south and we'll have a a couple of high tides today and the moon was full yesterday and with a good southerly breeze today, we could have flooding issues in annapolis, oldtown alexandria. the
about cutting federal spending and reducing the federal deficit. i will let for both of you to talk about programs are spending in the 17th district that he would be willing to sacrifice and help lower the federal deficit. 25 jobs -- doubling in the bridge >> the budget is the defining issue. i see it as getting down to priorities. we obviously have a budget problem. we have to balance our budget. how are we going to do it? on the backs of seniors? as my opponent opposes, where it would charge those of medicare and extra six to $400 a year. i talk to people all over this district. they cannot afford an additional $6,400 out of pocket. are we going to do it on the backs of workers such as those upton to freeport to jobs are getting set to china? because there are tax incentives to do that? or are we going to continue to give tax breaks for big oil at the expense of middle class families that are going to be asked to pay $2,000 more under the mayan budget plan that my opponents supports. -- under the ryan budget plan that my opponent supports. $100 billion and a savings every year. th
for was to control out of control deficit spending. >> so you'd leave that window open for 2016? >> you know, nobody knows what happens a week from tuesday and we'll see what happens a week from tuesday, but my primary purpose now is i have gone around the country campaigning for governor romney, and i'm hoping that governor romney wins is a week from tuesday. >> susan? >> senator, another important component next tuesday is obviously the senate and you need four seats to take control, for republicans to take control, and it looked as though things were going in favor of the republicans for a while recall but there are a couple of races where things are not going so well due to some controversial statements that the tea party republican candidates have made and some people are arguing now that this is another instance where the tea party is it dragging down the republicans' efforts to take over the senate. we have todd aiken in missouri, recently who made some statements that were controversial and richard murdoch just now in indiana. both of those seats, were looking more in favor of republicans an
enough, when you take into fact we spent $4.5 trillion in deficit recovery,. >> and an improvement ratio? >> not improving. >> not on that path. >> it's not on that path. >> is it an aberration? >> bureau of labor stats on this. have you requested them? >> yes, they don't tell you a lot of things. like the labor force participation rate. which has dropped toyorelatively low numbers, which makes the unemployment numbers lo better. >> in hindsight, when he critizes the last month's report. >> last month in crthe last month's report, the only reason that number got better was 582 people thousand left e the calculation, and went to work on a part-time basis, so the part-time jobs got better, bu we did not, they took these people out of ofthe denominator. >> those numbers are not that -- >> nay says finish? >> we're being accurate. >> i would say that's the nay-ers. if you look at the economy, nayu could see consumer confidence s the highest it's been. we've had steady, but nfslow growth. independent economists say we're on track to create 12 million jobs in the next four years, thwhoever is
and deficit. we are going to have to ask some tough questions, and we cannot be playing politics. we have to have are robust plan. i would say around 4 trillion dollars closer to five trillion dollars, and there is a lot of work being done on this. i hope during a lame-duck we get a great start on it, because it is a huge issue for jobs. it is a huge issue for this country. ireland, greece, these are canaries in a mine shaft, and we need to move forward with a good policy that will impact a whole country and do it in a responsible way to move our economy forward, and that is the number one issue we need to work on to move our country forward. >> i thank you for the question. what i introduced was a balanced budget requirement for the federal government, but the first piece of legislation i will sponsor was to repeal obamacare. we need to put that money back into medicare. we cannot afford that. i would be proud to carry the legislation as i was proud to carry the legislation to fund obamacare, i would be proud to support legislation to repeal obamacare. >> speaking about president obama,
first order of business is going to be to get our deficits and debt under control. and the good thing is is that there's a forcing mechanism. the bush tax cuts end at the end of the year. we know that we've got the sequester looming that's taking a machete to something as opposed to a scalpel. and after the election, i think that both democrats and republicans have to step back and say, you know what? this is something that the country wants to solve. if i've won, then i believe that's a mandate for doing it in a balanced way. we've already made a tril dolli dollars worth of cuts. we can make cuts. look at how to deal with health care cots under medicare and medicare in a speeerious way, b we're going to also need revenue. we kind of settle on the big question, how much government are we going to have, and how are we going to pay for it, then a lot of the other stuff falls into place. >> can you get medicare done? >> i think we can. >> because republicans demagogue it. democrats demagogue it. everybody's demagogued it through the years. can you go to the republicans and say, guys, we'
that shortchanging our children is not how we tackle the deficit. if we want to build opportunities for all americans, then, yes, we have to cut wasteful spending. but we also have to make smart investments in our future. things like education and infrastructure for an economy built to last. that is what my husband stands for. that's the country he has been working to build for the last four years. those are his values. and let me tell you as first lady i have seen up close and personal just how critical those values are for leading this country. i have seen how the issues that come across a president's desk they are always the hard ones. the decisions that aren't just about the bottom line. but they're about laying a foundation for the next generation. and i have seen how important it is to have a president who doesn't just tell us what we want to hear, but who tells us the truth even when it's hard. especially when it's hard. >> and coming up, the first lady tells us about meeting the president, her marriage and spending her 20th anniversary on a double date with the romneys. wanted to provide bett
ran deficits. when daniels came into power on budgets you helped to write, indiana was $700 million in debt and had a deficit of $820 million. the facts are stubborn things. i would like to know, how are we going to mature and preserve the fiscal integrity of indiana? >> if you would have spent the last 12 years in india rather than in congress you would know your budget has to be balanced. i balanced and produced balanced budgets. i find it almost laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anybody about fiscal responsibility. you voted not once, not twice but five times congressman. you voted and the results increased our deficit by 200 billion, billion with a b dollars. >> find a key governors races from across the country on c- span, c-span radio and c- span.org/campaign2012. host: we turn our attention now to the history of the october surprise. or events that happened before an election. our guest is joining us from their studios in washington you wrote that the october's surprise is a long story and mostly exaggerated history. so, why we have october surprises an
, asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little bit more. so we could reduce our deficit and invest in the skills and ideas of our people. and you know, at the time the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney vote -- they said that bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs. does that sound familiar? that's what they said. it turns out their math was just as bad back then as it is now. because -- because by the end of bill clinton's second term, america had created 23 million new jobs and a incomes were up and poverty was down, and our deficit had turned into a surplus. so wisconsin, we know what ideas work. we know our ideas work. and we know that their ideas don't work. we know it. and the reason we know it is we just tried it a few years ago. after bill clinton was out of office, they tried their ideas. we tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free rein to do whatever they play. what we got is falling incomes, record deficits, slowest job growth in 50 years and an ec
expensive for me. >> reporter: he said mr. obama broke promises to cut the deficit and save medicare. >> he is shrinking from the magnitude of the times. >> you got these guys. >> reporter: and both sides are wary of the impact on polling locations. if prolonged power outages or storm damage prevent voters from casting their ballots, especially in states where early voting is already under way. president obama has adjusted his schedule to stay out of sandy's path. he's flying to florida half a day early tomorrow, and he's getting regular updates from his staff. and, margaret, i wouldn't be surprised if we see more changes to his schedule as the week goes on depending on the severity of the storm. glerg nancy cordes in washington, thank you. overseas now, indonesian police have arrested 11 people suspects of planning attacks on the u.s. embassy and other american and international targets. the suspects were arrested in jakarta and three other provinces on the island of java. police seized live bombs, explosive materials, and a bomb-making manual. the leader of al qaeda is calling on supporte
energy. reducing the deficits by cutting where we can and asking the wealthy to pay a little more and ending the war in afghanistan so we can do nation building here at home. that's the right path. so, read my plan. compare it to governor romney's and decide which is better for you. >> the ad and the plan called a new economic patriotism has a fact about a second term for president obama. almost immediately after the election, the president will be confronted with a political crisis, the fiscal cliff, the bush tax cuts combined with $1.2 trillion in cuts mandated by last year's debt ceiling deal. the plan doesn't tell us about how to navigate the political terrain. he was more forthcoming with the register in iowa. we'll talk about it in a sec. elise is back with us at the table. first of all, the plan thing. the plan thing always polls well particularly with undecided voters. if you ask them what they want, they want a plan. romney has a plan. he's been talking act what he's going to do. he's loose on details. he's been talking commitments. barack obama has a four-year record and
it into deficit by imposing the bush tax cuts that were temporary, including millionaires. what governor romney is proposing -- let's return to those policies, the eight years of george bush. and continue to give tax breaks to the wealthy. loudoun responded in 2008. also when president obama took office in january of 2009, we were losing over 700,000 jobs a month. 700,000 jobs a month we were losing when george bush left office and president barack obama came into office. we will hear tomorrow the new jobs report, we are creating over 100,000 jobs. 5.2 million new jobs during this barack obama president's see, under 8% unemployment rate -- during this barack obama presidency. 32 months of the private sector job growth. you compare that to where we were when bush left office and the president took office. that is a remarkable improvement. that is the pathway to recovery , and president obama has been leading that. this is no time to change course and go back to -- we don't know what we will be getting with governor romney. he was governor of massachusetts. rounding achievement was mandatory heal
-partisan president but he's been the most partisan, dividing and demonizing. he said he would cut the deficit in half. he's doubled it. he said he would focus on jobs, instead he focused on obama care that kills job and said he'd bring health insurance down $2,500 a year, the cost of it for an average family. anybody here have their insurance go down 2,500? >> no. >> as a matter of fact, the average is up $3,000 per family. look, the president said that he would work across the aisle, he would meet regularly with leaders in the republican party. do you know how long it's been since he's met with the republican leader of the house or the senate on jobs or the economy or the deficit, since july he hasn't met with him. look, he just has not been able to deliver on the promises he's made. talk is cheap. a record is real and takes hard work, and he has not been able to accomplish it, and i actually have a record of accomplishment and that's why i'm running. as you know, i started a business. i actually helped turn around another business and helped turn around the olympics and you may have heard i was gov
-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message.
and warned. >> now, deficit. big issue for a lot of voters this election season. we know that governor romney has said in the third debate that u.s. is on track to follow greece, that america is the next greece. is this just really hot rhetoric or is it likely? >> it was a wonderful little sound bite, wasn't it? if obama gets elected, u.s. is the next greece. it's just hyperbole the differences between the u.s. and greece are so enormous that it doesn't really bear really fair comparison. not only because the u.s. has got the dollar, which is the world's largest reserve currency and largest market and growing at 2% and employment at 7.8%. all these issues. what the governor is talking about, of course, is debt and deficits. and the very high level of u.s. debt, which at some point is going to have to be addressed. whoever gets elected to the white house, whichever party takes the house and the senate, they are going to have to deal with the debt crisis. >> now, also got a chance to ask richard about his stateside train trip through the u.s. talked to voters from chicago through iowa and utah
to do with jobs but it does. it relates to debt and deficits which and that is if you're an entrepreneur thinking of risking your live ever life savings to start a business or build a factory, if you think america is on the road to greece or italy or spain, you're less likely to invest in america. and right now we spend a trillion more than we take in. it's bad for the economy. i think it's immoral for us to pass on debt like that to our kids and i will get america on track to a balanced budget. [applause] and number five, is to be a champion of small business, help small business grow and thrive. by the way, i didn't study small business alone. i've lived small business. i know how business works and i want to use that experience and that skill to help small businesses across the country. and there are a lot of ways to do that. let me mention just a couple. one relates to our taxes. do you realize that the taxes paid by a small business in america can be as high as 35%, that's the income tax and then if you add other taxes t payroll tax, the state income tax if you have one, real estate
is going to reduce the deficit. >> sean: really? if you know he how to do all these things why haven't you done them the past four years? is that the best you have got, mr. president? we see what your hopey changey thing brought us all. today the unemployment rate rose yet again. higher than when you took office four years ago and now stands at 7.9%. at this point in your presidency you predictd that by october of 2012 the unemployment rate would be, let's see, 5.2% at this stage. earlier, congressman paul ryan talked about the long list of obama's broken promises. there is no end to it. watch this. >>> remember when said he would cut the deficit in half? i don't even have to follow up that one, do i? what we are seeing today is that 23 million americans are struggling to find work today. what we see today s that 15% of our fellow country men and women are living in poverty. this is the highest poverty rate in a generation. the economy is growing at less than half the rate the president said it would be growing at if only he could borrow a bunch of money and spend it on his cronies in the
of enthusiasm on both sides. my strong sense, paul, this is an enthusiasm deficit on the democratic side. >> paul: all the polls show that. >> all the polls show that and i think it's a going to be a determining factor, now, new jersey, new jersey, maryland, it isn't going to decide whether-- obama will win those states. his popular vote may be down, i think the hurricane is going to suppress the popularity vote. >> paul: dampen that. >> and i spoke to a pollster not working for the obama campaign and agreed with dan's sentiment, turnout was an issue for democrats, enthusiasm is down, but also says that he thinks this allowed obama, even though he missed some days on the campaign trail, allowed him to get out there and show some leadership, some bipartisanship, thanks to the new jersey governor, republican chris christie be being at his side for a couple of days. >> paul: i want to ask you, new jersey residents, and generally a fan of governor chris christie, what do you make of this embrace of the governor with the president? >> well, our colleague peggy noonan, says you want to keep yo
the deficit in half. i know he says he wants to do something that helps with the budget, but to balance the budget it starts -- it helps to have actually had a budgets. >> from florida to new evening land, the nation watches as hurricane sandy prepares to bear down and slam into the atlantic coast. in florida they are not expecting to be too badly hit. he was asked to postpone all events. [no audio]. >> that's too bad. i was saying how well it was working while he was on the campaign bus. apologize for that technical glitch. we have team coverage of both campaigns coming up a little later on this hour. a live report from our chief white house correspondent ed henry traveling with president obama's campaign in the battleground state of new hampshire. that's coming up. >>> speaking of the weather, this is a fox extreme weather alert. hurricane sandy's path is looking more ominous by the hour as it barrels up the eastern seaboard. the monster storm is already battering the mid-atlantic states with punishing wind and rain. sandy is expected to collide with antarctic air blast as it reaches
to help the middle class. [applause] we know what is going to grow jobs, reduce the deficit. and let me tell you, what governor romney is offering eight it. it is not it. giving more power back to the biggest banks is not changed. leaving millions without health insurance, that is not changed. . a another $5 trillion tax cut that favors the wealthy, that is not change. [applause] refusing to answer questions about the details of your policies -- not change. rolling out a compromise by pledging the tea party's agenda, us. good luck to you. guest: thank you. host: a want to point to an editorial in bloomberg. that cannot from michael bloomberg, the mayor of new york. he writes that he votes for president to lead on climate change. he says the climate is changing how the increase in extreme weather we have experienced in new york city may or may not be the result it should compel all elected leaders to take action. governor bloomberg rates we need leadership from the white house. president obama has taken major steps to reduce our current consumption, including higher fuel efficiency stand
of ground with women since the first debate. the president has to make up that deficit with women if he's going to win. there is no other way. his deficit with men is so large. >> lynn, for women that are still undid he sided, the handful of women who might be undecided, we heard the economic message from governor romney, heard the president's fiscal message, coupled with his stance on women's issues, as well. which is having the greater pull on those independent women voters right now? >> i would tell you it's a breakdown. i agree with beth the obama campaign does question the figure. the whole thrust of the appeal until these last bit of time, he had been basically on jobs and the economy. that is what the romney campaign thinks trumps any issues on reproductive health. in most recent days, partly because of some of the blunders by republican candidates out there and statements, you've seen a new emphasis by the obama campaign appealing to women has been in charge of their reproductive health. president obama had a video out where he just said women should be allowed to make their own
a little more, so we could reduce the deficit and still make investments in things like education, train, science, research. and guess what? plenty of folks running for congress at the time said it would hurt the economy. that it would kill jobs. and if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates back then happens to be running for president right now. and it turns out, their math was just as bad back then as it is today because, by the end of bill clin totoclinton's turn am created 23 million jobs. the biggest surplus in our history. wisconsin we know the ideas that work. we also know the ideas that don't work. because in the eight years after bill clinton left office his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax cuts they didn't need, and that we couldn't afford. companies enjoyed tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas, insurance companies, oil companies, wall street given free license do what they pleased. folks, at the top got to play by a different set of rules than the rest of us. and result of this top-down economics was falling incomes, record deficits, s
